Cast & Crew
A naval officer, who was a movie executive in civilian life, passes through Van Buren, Arkansas on his way home. There, he encounters Bob Burns, the town philosopher, and believes that the man can help him make a trick movie about talking animals. Once the two men arrive in Hollywood, they tour famous nightclubs. Bob mortgages his farm to obtain the money necessary to complete the picture. Later, they return to Van Buren with the finished film, and it is a huge success.
The film's working title was Look Who's Talking. According to reviews, there was an animated sequence at the end of the picture similar to producer Jerry Fairbank's series of shorts, Speaking of Animals. This was the last film of comedian Bob "Bazook" Burns (1893-1956), who was known as "The Arkansas Philosopher." The Hollywood Reporter review notes that the full rights to the film were controlled by the John Deere company, manufacturers of tractors and farm machinery, whose salesmen were to "exhibit the entertainment on standard-size film in various rural communities they visit." The rights later reverted to Fairbanks, who then exhibited the film in theaters. It has not been determined if the film actually had a general theatrical release.
